“What [the Cloudflare] breach does illustrate is that every time we trust a company or tool or piece of software to make our computers [and websites] more secure, we also create a new potential vulnerability because we’re now relying on them.
So if there’s any weakness in that company or tool or software (and there almost certainly is) that’s our weakness, too.
That’s not a reason to avoid all security products and services, but it is a reason to choose them carefully and not assume that more security always equals better security.
New security protections create new vulnerabilities and more computer security doesn’t necessarily make us more or less secure, it just makes us secure—and insecure—in slightly different ways.”

But on the bright side, the video’s gotten over 4 million views in less than a month. As the saying goes, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
Yesterday, during a press call, New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick, went on a 5-minute rant exposing serious flaws in the NFL’s IT and AV infrastructure and worth ethic… alongside his frustration with the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet.
Read the full rant below. Not only is it an interesting glimpse into how much technology is at play on and off the field during an NFL game…
But it’s also a reminder of the uber importance of developing software and applications that are intuitive for your end consumer–in this case, a 64-old NFL coach.

I was reading this WaPo article in which famous authors shared what books have had the biggest influence on them, when I noticed that each of the books listed therein were hyperlinked to an Amazon product detail page, with an Amazon Affiliate tag embedded in the url.
I was surprised / not surprised that a media company had turned to Amazon as an additional stream of revenue.
And then I remembered that Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, is also the owner of WaPo.
